in this one league, i'm on pace to be ~53 innings over the limit.
i'm in first with something like 94.5 points, and second is 79, tho with fluctuations i've had leads like 88.5 to 85, but i've managed to sit atop first since basically the beginning of the season.
the only thing is, my glaring weakness on the pitching side is that i've only got 23 wins (good for 4 out of 12 points, somehow) but i'm well ahead of the pack in saves with 77 (second place is 58, third is 45)
here's the staff
SP - carlos zambrano, roy oswalt, josh beckett, johan santana, zach greinke
RP - mariano rivera, danny graves, danny kolb, jeremy affeldt
i've been sitting santana, but with his 7 IP 10 K performance, coupled with the fact that his two previous starts had him coasting for 5+ IP before imploding, i dont think i should sit him anymore. greinke is so good that its hard to sit him, you know?
i could feasibly trade a reliever for a position player (i'm only really schlepping in RBIs, where i have 5 points, otherwise i'm 12/9/5/12/11 on offense) but what would you recommend to do in order to maintain my place atop the league and pare down some innings so i dont run out of them in the last couple weeks of the season?
last year in one league i was in first going into the last week of the season, but i ran out of innings, and my dormant pitching totals lost me 2-3 points over that week, and i ended up in 2nd place because of the points i lost... so i just dont want that to happen again.
what do you think?
